Home — Does The Bible Put Any Constraints On Eating Animals?

Published: August, 2016.

Many people wonder if it is OK to kill animals and use them for food. For many it seems brutal and cruel to the animals that they have to die and become food for humans.

But when seeking answers in the bible and what Jesus said it is perfectly fine for Christians to use animals as food.

After the sin flood of earth God gave the animals as food for humanity to eat (Genesis 9).

Jesus said that all foods are clean, to say that a Christian cannot eat anything is wrong (Mark 7).

Jesus himself also ate fish. So there is no basis that Christians have to vegetarian or eat certain things to please God.
